About this app

Tarjimly is an app that lets you volunteer as a translator or interpreter for refugees and NGOs around the world. Here's how it works:

1 - Bilinguals sign up and get notified whenever a refugee needs a translator. They connect in a live session where they can send text, pictures, documents, or even get on a phone call. High performing volunteers can even become certified!

2 - Refugees and Aid Workers sign up and request a translator based on their needs (like asylum interviews, emergency medicine, navigating a new country, or any humanitarian need). Tarjimly uses machine learning to connect them the best available translator in seconds.

3 - Everyone can signup as a Community Member, so they you can donate to support refugee translations, read impact stories, and invite 10 bilingual friends to signup.

Our mission is to mobilize 1 million volunteers to improve humanitarian services forever by eliminating language barriers for refugees.

This app has been a complete lifesaver. Yes - sometimes the connection is poor but it is better than nothing. I have been working with refugees all summer and this app has given them a voice and also allowed me to explain things so much faster than I could have otherwise. Interpreters can be so expensive, and sometimes you just need to communicate something simple. Having this at my fingertips for FREE has helped so many individuals.

Whatever I try to do in the app, I always see the 'Congratulations! You're now an official Tarjimly translator! Yay!' screen. Whenever I try to accept an incoming request, the 'Yay!' message is shown as well, rendering the application useless. I have the latest update, and give the audio recording permissions explicitly every time I try to use the app, if that helps your debugging. Will keep this app till next update, then I'm afraid I'll uninstall it as malfunctioning one.

I signed up about 5 months ago. I never got a notification despite of making sure all notifications are turned on and permissions allowed. I get requests sometimes when I open the app by chance and it's always too late. I am from Algeria and I noticed that other people I know from Algeria who signed up on the app do not receive requests too, could it be something related to location? PS: I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling, using another device and reaching out to Tarjimly team
